Fun With Pulp Fiction

Recommended Posts

VonS and I recently had fun sharing a bunch of old pulp fiction covers - they were so horrible they were great!  :biggrin:

Also, I have been helping JacksonM as he experiments with hangar and loading screens. 

The two came together when he sent me a great shot of an "Evil Hun" with a Mauser broomhandle!  VonS wondered if there was a way to code the observers to throw daggers at opponents!

Still toying with the possibility of a pulp flavor for the new screens. Some possibilities below.  Good taste is timeless - but bad taste sells! 

How about "Wings Of The Death Modders" :fie:   VonS would like to see a mod where early observers throw daggers at each other. :biggrin:

I'm also considering a hokey Dawn Patrol flavor to the screens.

VonS has gotten formations of mixed aircraft to work in single player mode, so we are going to experiment further.  It was quite common for units to operate a mixture of equipment types - also, a variety of camo and markings was quite common.  Test screens for the Pfalz D3a below.  In the loading screen, imagine a line up of D3s with different markings and camo.

Fooling around with some of Gambit's FE screens, adapted to the new concept.
